Kunene And The King – The Fugard

The South African premiere. From 30 April 2019.

Eric Abraham presents a Royal Shakespeare Company and Fugard Theatre production of John Kani’s new play, Kunene and the King at The Fugard Theatre from 30 April 2019, hot off its world premiere at The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. The production is written by John Kani and is directed by Janice Honeyman.

John Kani stars as Lunga, a headstrong male nurse contracted to care for cantankerous actor Jack (Antony Sher) as he copes with terminal liver cancer. This moving and funny two-hander provides a fitting tribute to mark the 25th anniversary of South Africa’s first democratic elections after apartheid.

The production is currently running at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and will open at The Fugard Theatre on 30 April 2019. Friends of the Fugard benefit from great discounts on certain performances and seats when booking through the box office on 021 461 4554.
